One of my goals this year is to find my artist niche. A lot of soul searching and creativity has been in the works. Digging into my childhood and going through old sketch books has been a lot of fun. I'm starting to take old sketches and getting them ready to be paintings. The "Reflections in the Mystic Mirror" painting below was originally an idea in one of my old sketch books.
Stage 1: Sketching out the idea with pencil.
Stage 2: Using watercolor to make a dreamy background. I use blue painters tape to prevent bleeding. Plus, it's not as sticky so it doesn't tear the paper after your finished.
Stage 3: Finish painting.
I think this is a good start on what direction I'd to go. I'd get focused while painting and would forget to take more pictures. Next weeks WIP will be better!
Also, one of my close friends has started a fashion blog called "Pretty & Prudent" where she shares her fashionable finds on the cheap! I'm amazed by the great products and cloths she can find sometimes under $5.00!!! I've done told her we need to go on a shopping date to help me out. So if you have time go over to "Pretty & Prudent" and see what deals she has found here lately. Be ready to be shocked.
